There are two computer labs in our school district. Both are used for formal instruction given by a technology teacher. Students attend technology class on a five day cycle for approximately fifty minutes. The skills taught are aligned with the Massachusetts Technology Frameworks and include, but are not limited to: Microsoft PowerPoint, Scratch Programming, and Google Drive. This instruction prepares students to work more independently within the regular classroom.
Kindergarten and Grade 1 classrooms have several PCs and tablets to give students access to the latest education tools.
Grades 2,3, 4, 5 and 6 have been assigned Chromebook carts that are used to provide machines for the entire class while in the classroom. These Chromebooks are used to access internet-based curriculum software and to introduce Google Drive for project collaboration.
